Matching glazed porcelain flooring tiles are produced in the 50 by 50 cm format using the lappato technique, which are available in a choice of colours such as ivory, mocha and espresso.
“The Model series has been produced using Satinato technique to create a granule lustre effect with rectified edges.

A Model panel consists of two pieces, measuring 25 by 100 cm and is available in matt and gloss finish with golden and platinum flowers.
